In North Carolina

June 8, 2004

I’m typing this from the 3rd floor of the Red Hat headquarters in Raleigh. I am here for “Employee Orientation”. It was a day and a half of powerpoint slides on where the company is at and where they want to go. I love the whole mentality around this place. It’s very alive. As an example of what I mean, they gave us all red fedora hats (which is their logo). They also have a fitness center, game room, and (free) cafe in the building. I hope the Boston office is like this, too.

Speaking of Boston… I found an apartment in New Hampshire, instead of Massachusetts, but it’s only 10 miles from work. A few other people from Red Hat live there too, so we are going to start a car pool, I think. Should save on gas, which is absurd right now.

well gotta go. They are going to use the lab now for a class. I don’t have a computer right now, so may be a few days before I come around again.
